Think you can't afford to study abroad? Think again

You might be surprised to hear that studying abroad is easier than you think. In fact, right now you can access tons of educational scholarships not only provincially and federally, but on the international stage as well. And you can find out how to get one and learn about scholarships in the United States, Europe and Australia at the Study and Go Abroad Fair on February 25.

Many of the exhibitors at the fair offer academic and sports scholarships and will also be on hand to offer interesting information you won’t find anywhere else. For example, did you know that Germany is just one of the countries that offers free education to everyone, including international students? On the other hand, France offers international students the same fees and benefits as local students, while some states in America also offer Canadians local fees rather than international rates.

You’ll also be surprised to hear that the U.K. offers three-year undergraduate degrees and one-year graduate degrees. In other words, even if you’re paying international fees it can work out to be cheaper than studying in Canada. And, by studying abroad, you can enter into medicine, chiropractic, pharmacy and law programs straight after high school, meaning you qualify in less time.

All of this and more will be covered in free seminars that will be held during the Study and Go Abroad Fair. Check out the seminar schedule, and don’t forget to come early at 2 p.m. for the feature seminar where you’ll find out how to access the millions of dollars worth of scholarships, bursaries and financial assistance that can make your studying abroad experience happen.
